~ Laura, Kirin and Harlow ~
Over a year ago, Harlow found her forever home with Laura and Kirin. Since then, they have become a family and have greatly changed each other’s lives for the better.
For as long as they can remember, Laura and Kirin have always loved animals. When they decided one day to attend a Chained Dogs Rehabilitation and Rehoming NZ meet-and-greet, they fell in love with a small pup named Harlow.
When Harlow came out of her foster family’s car, Laura and Kirin loved her sweet little legs and long body. Initially, Harlow wasn’t very interested in them, preferring to stay close to her foster family. Yet, Laura and Kirin felt there was something there, they adopted her shortly after, providing her with her forever home.
Almost immediately, Harlow happily adjusted to her new home. So much so that, to Laura and Kirin, it felt like she had always been there! However, she was very anxious and timid around strangers. It took a lot of time, patience and compassion to help her learn to trust. After a while, she learned to trust her humans, and gradually became more social and confident. Being able to see Harlow flourish and enjoy each and every day fills Laura and Kirin’s hearts. Seeing how much she has healed has meant so much and has inspired them to become strong advocates for adopting animals from rescues and shelters.
Since finding her forever home, Harlow has been introduced to her most favourite place – the beach! Early in the mornings, Laura and Kirin take their canine companion out for a walk along the beach. Harlow adores doing zoomies across the sand and just the freedom she gets while in her happy place.
The impact that Harlow has had on Laura and Kirin has been huge. She has brought endless joy and unconditional love into every day since they adopted her. Not only that, but her humans have helped her to flourish and be the lovely doggo she is today.
